Quinton Greene’s work illustrates a kind of abandon that is often lost as we grow older, reveling in color and form, touching on both the personal and archetypal. From the seemingly random minutiae of our lives, the tide of objects that surround us in a fast-paced throwaway culture, Greene assembles both reverently and playfully.
“Pieces of Me” features portraits of Greene’s loves and of his guiding spirits, stories of communities in both celebration and struggle.
